Default Cold start problems

My Dads friend called and asked about his 95 ram with a V8 starting tough when cold. When its warm out or the truck is warmed up it seem to start fine. I haven't seen the truck to see what is going on with it but it sounds maybe like temp sensor or something to that affect.

check the cap and rotor. had a few complaints of hard starts only to find the cap and rotor were corroded very badly. dodge engineered these things that the distributor is directly under the edge of the hood. if the hood seals are bad water will drip directly onto the distributor.
